Looking For Me - Beth Hoffman and #FitReaders Check-In: June 24, 2016

Teddi Overman found her life’s passion in turning other people’s castoffs into beautifully restored antiques. Leaving her hardscrabble Kentucky childhood behind, Teddi opens her own store in Charleston. She builds a life as unexpected and quirky as her many customers, but nothing alleviates the haunting uncertainty she’s felt since her brother Josh mysteriously disappeared. When signs emerge that Josh might still be alive, Teddi returns to Kentucky, embarking on a journey that could help her come to terms with her shattered family—and find herself. 

My thoughts:
It was good, but I do confess that I expected more. The last book I read by the author had such wonderful charm, and it was that part that was lacking here. I liked that charm in that other one, aye it was lovely.

But this book is about Teddi who loves antiques, she leaves home for a new town just to find a way to work with that. I liked her spirit and her drive. But at the same time, this was all that she loved. She did not feel it, but I felt like she missed out on things.

There is also the story of her brother who went missing long ago. What really happened? And that gives us flashbacks to her childhood and up to him going missing. Her brother was...strange.

Conclusion:
It was a good story, but yes I knew there could have been more, so I missed that.
